The head coach of the KIJHL’s Fernie Ghostriders says he’s looking forward to regular season action.
Jeff Wagner says he likes what he saw from the team during it’s pre season schedule.
“We implemented some structure going into the fourth game there in Creston and we liked how our team executed,” Wagner says. “Pretty optimistic going into Spokane for the start of the season.”
He adds this year’s squad boasts a healthy mix of returning veterans and talented rookies.
“Keelan Sowarski, Brendan Nemes are the two big guys up front,” Wagner says. “They were point a game guys last year, they are coming back as 20 year olds, so those guys are going to be well-known in our community,”
He says the team will feature some local rookies plus returning veterans.
The Ghostriders begin their regular season in Spokane Friday.
